"The Mighty Mississippi"
July 18 Hopkins High School Cafeteria 9:00 - 5:30 (5:30 - 7:30 Family Night)
July 24-28 Eagle Bluff ELC
We are excited to be exploring the Mississippi River as part of our learning adventures this year. On July 18, we will take a field trip to the Fridley Water Filtration Plant and see firsthand how millions of Minneapolis residents gain access to the water of the Mississippi River. We will also spend time down by the river and will explore the river's natural habitats.
During our time together, we will also tie-dye shirts, create our Eagle Bluff schedules, and learn about one another and our trip during "Family Night."
We have an amazing group of 73 students spanning all grade levels. For newcomers leaving home for the first time, this time away can be a bit unnerving. Our staff and returning students always do a great job making students feel safe and secure. We know this will be a great experience for everyone.
Please take a look at our roster. If your child's age or grade for the 2017-2018 school year is not accurate, please e-mail any corrections to Scott.
We are going to spend some time planning out songs and skits for our Thursday night camp fire. If you have time this summer to practice an instrument or plan a skit, we would love to watch what you create.
We will also be holding our 3rd annual Amazing Race. On Wednesday night, we will challenge each cooperative group with activities throughout the Eagle Bluff property. This will include tasks such as answering Eagle Bluff or SFB trivia, tying knots, and creating a flint and steel fire. We are asking each team to develop a themed costume which still allows for full range of movement including running. Prizes will be awarded for the best team costume, best individual costume, and best themed costume.
Last year, we found our Amazing Race to be a fun and safe activity which challenged each child to work as a team towards a common goal.
